Mystery Dyno

Here's a dyno that I don't think many people have seen.  Every time I look at it, it just blows my mind.  Can you guess what it belongs to?

I'll provide the right answer after everyone has had a chance to guess.


  1. That would be me on a treadmill.

  2. 18000 rpm, also you didn't rename the picture, so I'mma guess Ferrari F1 engine

  3. Obviously Pat is the winner but my question would be the big blip in the torque curve... What era is this motor from?

  4. Since I was a complete idiot and didn't relabel the image, here's the answer.

    The dyno belongs to a 2000 Ferrari F1 car, one of Michael Schumacher's winning race cars. If nobody bothered to do the conversion, the torque is somewhere around 253 lb-ft. That's the point that amazes me, exploiting revs for horsepower.
